Just FYI, figuring by volumes, the 8x10 inch pan (supposing standard 2 inch height) holds 160 cu inches or about 11 cups.
According to one of several baking-pan-volume-charts, these pans hold 12 cups (enough for this batter and some extra to prevent overflows):
tube pan 9 in diam or Bundt pan 10 in diam
rectangle (aka lasagna pan) 9x13
layer cake pans 8 or 9 in diam 2x
loaf pans 2 at 9x5 or 4 at 8x4
cupcakes 18 to 24

PS One review of this cake said the original pan was so large it gave a very thin cake.
Maybe use a smaller pan than those I suggested, one of the layer cake pans, or half the number of loaf pans.
